Valentine’s Day is celebrated as a holiday in honor of love. Yet, so many women and girls are abused in the name of love. On February 14, 2013, over one billion people in 207 countries danced to demand the end of violence against girls and women. This year, more will gather to “Rise, release, dance and demand justice.” On Friday, February 14, 2014, the dancers of Tribal Fire are hosting the One Billion Rising Hafla.
